I had recently r/r a sony MPF920-F floppy from my ME to XP. I hooked up the floppy to the floppy power and data cables that were available inside the computer and the date cable was connected to the mobo. The data cable even had a picture of a floppy disk on it....but the system doesn't see any drive 'A". Why is this??
I will check the BIOS again but as I recall there was no reference to the A drive or floppy. I had accessed the BIOS by pressisng my F2 key when first starting up my computer. Is it possible that my mo/bo does not have a controller...if that makes any sense?
I went back into the BIOS and, step by step, click by click, I had located the floppy option and had changed the USB to Internal...when I had exited, I got a green light on my floppy...I went into the DM and it was there and got a message that said new hardware was added and it is now available to use.
